Comedian Katt Williams arrested, jailed in L.A.
Posted January 9, 2013
Comedian Katt Williams was arrested Tuesday in Woodland Hills, Calif., after he failed to show up for a court date in Sacramento, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Williams was due to appear in court for the November incident in which he drove a three-wheeler up on a sidewalk and failed to stop for police. Los Angeles police were aware of the bench warrant and took him into custody.
Williams, 51, whose real name is Micah Sierra Williams, was taken into custody on Tuesday and was held on $100,500 bail. This marks his seventh arrest in the last 26 months.
Adding to his woes: He was also arrested at his Los Angeles-area home on Dec. 28 on suspicion of child endangerment after police allegedly found a stolen loaded gun in his home.
